Weekend closure on Mesa Park

Mesa Park Interchange Project will cause closures

Mesa Park will be closed this weekend as construction crews work on the Mesa Park Interchange Project.

The closure will be from 7 a.m., Saturday to 5 a.m., Monday from Paisano to Rio Bravo. All ramps from Mesa Park to I-10 will also be closed. An alternate route to I-10 can be accessed by taking Sunland Park Drive or by going through downtown.

The Texas Department of Transportation suggests drivers allow extra travel time if they plan on going through the area.

During the project, workers will be milling and repaving the area, as well as installing new light poles and building five bridges.

The project will add access to I-10 from Mesa Park Drive, north of Executive Center Boulevard. With the population of the area growing rapidly, there has been more congestion. The project is designed to reduce traffic congestion, and to give drivers to have easier access to I-10.

The $25 million projected started in September of last year, and it is expected to conclude early next year.
